Big Boyz sits in with Open Labs as they conducted a small interview for big future plans!
1.) How did you first hear about Open Labs?
Surfing the web, we saw an Open Labs youtube interview with Timbaland.
2.) What Production Station do you have?
We have a Timbaland Edition MiKo.
3.) How has the gear changed your method of work?
More productive, more creative… less time troubleshooting.
4.) What is your production station’s primary function, live or studio?
We used it for studio, remixing, djing, tracking, and finalizing.
5.) What is your favorite software on the board?
6.) How do you use it?
It’s the center of attention on our Miko when it comes to pre and post-production.
7.) Which kind of equipment have you owned in the past and how do they compare to your Open Labs equipment?
VS2480, Triton, Phantom, MPC, Roland XP80, ASR10, Roland MV, all of these are nice pieces but the Miko is an all-in-one piece with the same capabilities and added software. The Miko let’s you take advantage of your vintage gear while using the latest technology. So the possibilities ARE endless.
8.) Has the gear changed the way you write songs?
Definitely, yes. It has allowed us to be more productive which, in turn, allots us more time to be even more creative.
9.) How different is the composition process compared to the standard computer or laptop system?
With standard PC’s and laptops, that’s already a disadvantage because they are not catered toward the artists/musicians, You spend more time troubleshooting why multiple platforms won’t work together in laptops/PC’s, most of which have already been tested with Open Labs Products, not to mention you have an Open Labs Tech tech-support team available that cares.
10.) Do you think the quality of your production now would be possible with another keyboard?
Keyboard? No. Not to our knowledge.
11.) Have you had any experience with our Tech Support and how does it rate with you?
Yes. It’s a very friendly staff; people who take care of their users, take pride in their product, and who are very knowledgeable.
12.) What is next for you and your Production Station?
Definitely upgrades, and looking forward to everything else they’ve integrated into the new products. We will continue using OL products on current and future projects; everything that’s made by Big Boyz Music is produced on our Miko.
